Biography of Band

DESPOND was created in 1995, from the ashes of the death metal band Perished (initialy founded in 1993).

The band started exploring the doom/death metal genre, and released his first demo tape As my Soul reaches Infinity in 1996.
In the end of the same year, DESPOND recorded a concert in Paris (with headliner Impaled Nazarene), and the live tape album Beheaded and Sanctified was released in Spring 1997.

Until the end of 1998, the band toured in France and composed enough material to enter the studio and record his debut album... Unfortunately, several band members decided to leave the band for some musical reasons, only a few weeks before entering the studio.

Between 1998 and 2002, DESPOND remained the individual project of Richard Loudin, vocalist and founding member. During this period, Richard Loudin wrote and composed brand new songs, in a darker and more extreme doom metal genre.

Entitled Supreme Funeral Oration , this album was recorded between October 2001 and July 2003, by Richard Loudin for most of the instruments (vocals, guitars, drums, keyboards) and Jonathan Thery (bass).

In August 2002, DESPOND reformed with a brand new line-up including musicians from the doom/death metal band Ataraxie, and the former DESPONDs drummer.
Finally complete, the band played some concerts and festivals in Europe during the first half of 2003 (Doomination of Europe, Belgian Doom Night, Doom Metal Festival in London).

The debut album Supreme Funeral Oration was finally released in July 2003 by french label Haceldama Productions. In the same period, and after the show in London, the band parted ways and Richard Loudin is now the only member left.

2005 will be the 10 years anniversary for DESPOND...
And the band will return with a new album, so stay Doomed...
